stream. the positions of governor romney that he took in the primary on immigration reform. the positions that he took on women's health issues and contraception and planned parenthood drove large numbers of voters away from them, and then on economic, central to this election. they had a theory that frankly was not a popular theory in the country which is that you know, if we go back to tax cuts for the wealthy and deregulation that would profit everyone, and then for romney himself, there were specific things that he did. i think that the decision in the final week to try and litigate the auto bailout again, in ohio, had a tremendously negative impact there, and perhaps beyond ohio. so, you know, in the final analysis, there are a lot of factors here, but in the short-term, that was a very bad decision, in my view. >> people are looking to what happened and saying, look, the senate remains with democrat house with republicans. barack obama re-elected. not much change. how can we expect the washington machine, many consider fractured if not paralyzed to get things done? the speaker boehn
. >> do you see, senator schumer, very quickly, a role for governor romney in this process? would you like to see the president bring him in to, say, the negotiations over the fiscal cliff? >> well, don't know about that. but i would like to see him speak up. i think you could see him struggling in the general election. the hard right had moved him so far over on issues like immigration. and i didn't think his heart was in it. so he could help. you know, we need forces to help. when either party moves too far over, they lose. democrats too far left, republicans too far right. you need some mainstream republican voices. you need the business community to speak up on the fiscal cliff and the need for revenues. you need people like romney and jeb bush and others to talk about doing a comprehensive immigration reform so that the republicans who have the courage to stand up, and tom coburn has had that courage, don't just hear from the shrill right. and graham is willing to do it on immigration. he's going to say that this morning. we need other people to do the same. >> we will leave it there
. they finished their count on saturday. the final tally, president obama 50% of the vote. governor romney 49.1% of the vote, a slim 74,000 votes divided the two candidates. the win gave the president eight of the nine critical swing states. he only lost to mitt romney north carolina. gregg: well, new signs that democrats and republicans could be moving toward a compromise deal, well at least they're talking about it, to avert the so-called fiscal cliff. major tax hikes across the board spending cuts, set to automatically go into effect at the end of the year. on "face the nation", senior obama advisor david axelrod discussing how both sides seem to be moving closer to a key sticking point. >> speaker boehner seemed to suggest that he was open to closing loopholes, to real tax reform. can you get there by just closing loopholes, or will it take more than that? >> well, look, i don't want to prejudge the discussions. i think that the speaker's comments have been encouraging and there is obviously money to be gained by closing some of these, closing some of these loopholes and applying them to
were obviously going for governor mitt romney. what's your answer to him? >> you know, i tweeted a lot about brian and i tweeted very negative things about brian. i said that the nbc nightly news has become very, very boring, which it has. and he was critical of that. and it has become very boring. and a couple of other things. so he actually, i picked up 197, 137,000 followers after he and others mentioned what i did, my little attack on brian. the funny thing is, when i tweeted about brian, nobody cared. they were more interested in patterson and kristen stewart. they didn't care about brian inasmuch such is twitterverse. >> brian: it was a great compliment. right in the middle of the election, he starts reading my tweets. >> steve: speaking of the election, how do you think mitt romney ran his campaign? >> well, i think he's a wonderful guy. i think he's a nice guy, but he should have been tougher. he should have been out there more. he should have been on your show a lot. he should have been on lots of other shows and say what you want about obama, he was on letterman, he was on le
of office? >> you saw those ads that suggested romney gave people cancer in ohio for months and months unanswered. you can trash an individual and get them to vote against him. again, where we had an election, there are 30 republican governors, and they're running campaigns against raising taxes and in favor of frankly phasing out the income tax in north carolina and kansas and oklahoma. >> those are state issues. speaker boehner said clearly -- >> the issues are clear -- >> we're willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions. would you accept new revenue and would members that have signed your no-tax pledge be allowed to accept new revenue? >> of course, the pledge is to the american people, not to me. they don't need my permission to vote any way. they made a commitment to the people in their state. you can get more revenue through economic growth if you grow at 4% a year instead of 2% a year. the government will get $5 trillion in additional revenue. i'd rather do growth than raise taxes which slows the economy and damages things. obama is not interested in taxing the ric
is michael steele, former chairman of the republican national committee. the former lieutenant governor of maryland. you have one selection than you have lost elections. we saw mitt romney back at his headquarters, but what the thinking is going through personally? guest: it's tough. he ran before in 2008. for him, this has been a very personal journey to endure what he had to indoor with respect to his face, the assaults on that, the assaults on his character and integrity, assault on his integrity as a governor to lead. it's very personal. you have to find that space and get in that space where you really stand aside and say that's the politics of it, but it's hard to do. thank you for your run. you bested a big field of republicans, he weathered the storm, and you put together a very strong field. that first debate in september was one of the strongest by had ever seen. he was the governor of his state and i was lieutenant governor and we became close in our association. he was a guy i was always looking for. i would see glimmers of him and it's very frustrating that people around hi
